As you might have noticed, we’re more than halfway through 2021. And I, gasp, haven’t launched a book yet.
For those of you keeping track, I’ve launched a book every year for the past five years. Often, more than one.
Well, I have some bad news and some good news, you guys. The bad news is, I’m not launching a book in 2021.
The good news is, I’m launching a podcast instead. The even better news? It’s based on my most popular short story ever.
You guys, Haunted MTL is launching a podcast that I wrote called AA on September second.
Yeah, that’s happening.
When Josey moves to a new town, she finds that she can’t escape her demons. She needs a meeting. But the one she finds isn’t the one she was looking for.
She discovers a community of aliens, hiding in plain sight. Josey is thankful to find a group of people who accept her, including a new roommate and a cute guy.
But the community isn’t without its darkness. And they have their enemies. Josey soon finds herself caught in a war that she barely understands, but can’t help but join.
During this war, Josey learns that the alien community is hardly the only thing unexpected in her new home. She stumbles into one dark place after another, realizing that small towns hold more secrets than outsiders could ever imagine.
I originally published AA as a standalone short story with Solstice Publishing. And I’m pretty proud to say it had a good reception. I even had one delightful commenter on Amazon say they thought this would be a great tv series. I don’t know who this person is, but I will love them for the rest of my life. And yes, this did inspire this idea.
AA includes some amazing voice talent. I play a few characters, of course. But you’ll also hear the voice of my talented and amazing co-star of Off The Bone, J.M. Brannyk.
Along with us, you’ll hear Jim Phonix, Ev, Jennifer Weigel, and Kal Scarlett. This is such an awesome group of voice actors that I was blessed to work with. They’re also great writers, artists, and critics who share amazing content every day on Haunted MTL.
AA is creepy fun. It’s about addiction. It’s about being new in a small town. It’s about the dark shadows in hometowns that we all know but don’t talk about. It’s about all of those things and more, and I think you’re going to love it.
Stay tuned for more info as we get closer to the release date. I can’t wait to introduce you all to the world of AA.
